Know Thine Enemy: South Side Sox
|2012 - Esmerling Vasquez||0-1||2||2||0||0||0||0||8.2||10||9||9||1||8||4||9.35||2.08|
He's probably an underdog this evening.
|2012 - Chris Sale||16-6||26||25||1||0||0||1||169.0||139||55||54||17||44||168||2.88||1.08|
Sale was supposed to go up against Justin Verlander last night, but due to the postponement he gets to face the Twins instead, who are again without one of their most noteworthy hitters (see below). All the odds seem to be favoring the White Sox in this one, which would make an upset all the more sweet. Also because I really don't like the White Sox, outside of Konerko.

- Still no Mauer, Doumit, Parmelee. Clearly no sense in rushing them back (the Tigers may disagree), but man, that's not the Twins "A" lineup.
- As noted by multiple sources, Josh Willingham is one homer shy of the first 35 home run season by a Twins since Harmon Killebrew. Dang.
Enjoy the game, everybody.
